Help Raise Awareness for Imperiled Monarch Butterflies
Donate a post on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr

The monarch butterfly is one of the most recognizable species in North America and it's in trouble.

  1. Climate change has intensified weather events which may impact monarch populations.
  2. Pesticide use can destroy the milkweed monarchs need to survive.
  3. Habitat loss and fragmentation has occurred throughout the monarch’s range.

You can help.

  1. Plant milkweed and nectar plants that are native to your area.
  2. Garden organically to minimize your impact on monarchs, their food plants and other pollinators.
  3. Become a citizen scientist and monitor monarchs in your area.
  4. Educate others about pollinators, conservation and how they can help.
  5. Support conservation efforts like the Monarch Joint Venture.

Get started today!

Help us spread the word by donating a post on your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account through our Thunderclap.

Here's how it works:

  1. Visit the Save the Monarchs campaign page
  2. Choose which platform you'd like to support the campaign from (Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr)
  3. Once our goal of 250 people is reached, the message will be sent out on all supporters' accounts at once
  4. You can help us reach people who may not know about the importance of saving the monarch
